If you know me, then you know I live in a house surrounded by boys. I have my husband and my three men in training. Our schedules are crazy and at this point in the baseball season we rarely are able to sit down to dinner as a family. Last night the two older boys had practice and a game, and of course they were in totally different locations. Dinner was going to have to be a fast and easy one that they could grab whenever they were here and hungry. This is one of our favorite “Big Dumb Dinners”.
BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
- 1 rotisserie chicken meat pulled off and shredded
- 1/2 onion sliced
- 5 garlic cloves whole
- 1 bottle of bbq sauce whatever is your favorite
- hamburger rolls
- 1 bag of pre-shredded cole slaw mix
- 1/2 cup mayo
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 Tbsp white vinegar
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- salt and pepper
In a sauce pan, combine the chicken, onion, garlic and bbq sauce. Let the whole business simmer for 30 minutes until the onions and soft.
While you are letting that simmer, make the coleslaw. Mix the mayo, milk, vinegar, sugar and salt in a bowl. Once combined, pour over the preshredded cole slaw mix and stir until all covered. Add the pepper and taste for seasoning.
To make the sandwiches, I toast the burger rolls under the broiled until lightly brown and crispy. Take the garlic ouf of the chicken mixture and then top the rolls with the chicken. Now top the whole sandwich with a nice scoop of the cole slaw. Get you pile of napkins out and enjoy! If you are anything like my family, you will have to double this recipe because one sandwich is never enough!
